Voucher Portability

Voucher Portability

Once you are issued a Housing Choice Voucher, you can use it throughout the United States.

The Voucher Program participant MUST notify the Housing Authority where they currently live that they want to utilize the Portability option of the voucher to transfer to Beaumont, or from Beaumont, to another city of their choice.

The Voucher client is required to provide the Housing Agency where they currently live BHA's contact information listed below:

The Housing Authority of the City of Beaumont, Texas
1890 Laurel
Beaumont, Texas 77701
Phone: 409-951-7200
Fax: 409-951-7272

Clients wishing to transfer their voucher to BHA or to move to Beaumont should notify their Housing Counselor in their hometown for guidance on doing so.

The Housing Authority where they currently live should send all Portability paperwork to:

The Housing Authority of the City of Beaumont, Texas
1890 Laurel
Beaumont, TX 77701
Phone: 409-951-7200
Fax: 409-951-7272

The required paperwork should include:

  • Form HUD-52665 Family Portability Information Form
  • Client's Current Housing Voucher
  • Current 50058 Form
  • Client's Current Income Verifications
  • Client's contact address and phone number (preferably a Beaumont address, if they have one)

After the client's portability information is received in the office, they will receive an appointment by mail within 2 to 3 weeks.
